Who's who in this picture of The 'Mats?

Post by AlyssaJones »

Image

I think it's [left to right] Bob Stinson-Chris Mars-Tommy Stinson-Paul Westerberg

Is that correct? I just wanted to make sure 'cuz this picture's hanging on my bedroom wall and it would be pretty dumb to have a picture of some guys and not even know who they were.

Bob is definitely on the right, and I'm pretty sure paul is on the left. I want to say you have chris and tommy right, but I don't really know from that. I can pick out tommy on the really old 'mats pictures (he was the drunk 12 year old on stage). I'm just not used to seeing picture's of paul from that long ago. It's almost like looking at pictures of the jayhawks from the late 80s.

It's definately Paul on the left; the one with his hands behind his back. It's definately Bob (God rest his soul) Stinson with the mullet :lol: and the cigarette. Pretty sure Chris is next to Paul and Tommy is giving us the finger standing to the left of his brother.

I'm going to have to go home tonight; dust off Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, 75% Less Fat and Tenterhooks to see if there is a good picture of Chris on any of those cd's.

left to right -Paul, Chris, a very odd looking Tommy and Bob

I'm currently reading All Over But The Shouting (oral history of The Replacements) by Jim Walsh. Great book even if you're just a so-so Mats fan.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Okay, thanks for clearing that up. :) I knew Tommy was the little guy 'cuz he was so young, and I thought Paul was Bob because I think he looks like Tommy in the pic so I thought they were brothers. And I figured Bob was Paul since Paul was the oldest and Bob looks to be the oldest one in the picture. Oh wait, *checks Wiki* Paul and Bob were the same age. Whatever, it doesn't matter.

I'm currently reading All Over But The Shouting...Great book
That’s what I hear. I bought/ distributed 3 copies within the last year as either a Christmas or a birthday present. I sent explicit instructions to each recipient; send it back to me after you finish so I can enjoy. Hoping just one would follow through. Funny; a year later I am still waiting and all follow up requests have fallen on deaf ears. :shock: :shock: :lol: :evil: :? :cry:

Looks like I will be treating myself to purchase #4.

Yeah, I know. What I meant was, I thought the guy in the picture who is Paul was Bob, because I think Paul and Tommy look alike in the picture, so I thought that one must have been Tommy's brother.
